Thanks for the pdf links. At first sight these algorithms look quite promising. It would be nice to know what the license situation on them is.

That's the mesh-mixer method.

We just got a new software engineer at Ultimaker (he simply known as Tim). And he actually knows about algorithms and stuff. So he is looking into this right now, to see if we could implement this method in Cura. Most likely months away from actual release. But, yes, support structures is finally something that is getting attention.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
